CSA Pickup Reminder Thurs Jan 25 & Fri 26 RETURN BOXES ON PICKUP THANKS!

Posted 1/25/2018 9:56am by Jill Rendleman.

Members will find winter kale, sweet potatoes, local mushrooms, garlic, and head lettuce in your share this week!  The garlic is really not so nice looking on the outside......but has great texture and taste,  the sweet potatoes are holding up really well in taste and quality.   We are back to taking down low tunnels from fall plantings....sad to see so many good things get blasted by those couple weeks of 0-10 degree days, much of it got into shares before the deep freezes, but some did not.  The spinach in the high tunnel looks ready to go as early as next week.  CSA members get the first of the best stuff so be looking for that.  The winter kale is really sweet due to the low temps, it is lighter colored than toscano, but close your eyes and give it a taste, compare.    

Finally this week the ice disappeared and we have been able to get the bags and hoops off the outdoor plots to get a head start on spring.   Still getting seeding plans in order (let me know if you have a particular veggie you want us to add for 2018).....then theres taxes and the new organic plan I have to turn in for 2018.....but the sun is out, the hens are making happy sounds again and we are seeing lots and lots of bluebirds eating worms from our plots!  Bill has rehabilitated a chicken that didn't get in the coup before sundown and got chewed on by a possum very badly.  He washed it up, hand fed it warm honey water, slowly introduced soft fruits, and then regular feed.  It started laying eggs! last week, so he decided to repatriate it with the flock.   Last night he went out and it was sitting next the the door with a please get me out of here look....so she's back in the garage cage happy as can be.  sorry, I digress. 

Times and places the same today.  CALL or TEXT, do not email, if you have CHANGES or QUESTIONS.  618-308-0217. your farmer, Jill
